Good god man. As the drama stretches out into the second week, Kovalchuk has yet to make a decision. Will he sign with the Los Angeles Kings? As of last week, the answer was no. The reports coming out of the Los Angeles Kings were that he rejected their best offer and they had to move forward. So was that the end of it? Of course not. According to sources, the Kovalchuk camp provided a counter offer to Los Angeles today which Dean Lombardi and company are now mulling over.
So one day he’s in Los Angeles, it’s almost a sure thing. Then maybe he’s going to stick with New Jersey. Heck a few days ago there were reports that he had already signed in New Jersey (obviously false). Then he might go to the KHL. Now he wants back into Los Angeles. For the love of all that is holy Kovy, JUST PICK SOMETHING. Frankly, although I think (know) he’d make our team better, I’m sick of all this wishy-washy stuff. I recognize it’s mostly just posers and posturing, but still. It’s a pain in my neck.
Especially because I have to write a freaking blog post about it every freaking time, and nobody wants to read about it. Actually that’s not true. Every time I write a post that mentions Kovalchuk readership spikes… but still. Just sign somewhere, we’ll all write about what a terrible (or brilliant) choice it was, and move on with our lives.
